1999 Champagne

Maison Philipponnat's Clos des Goisses is produced on 5.5 hectares (13.5 acres) walled vineyard located on the most prestigious slope in Champagne. The clos is one of the rarest, oldest, and steepest of the region. Clos de Goisse was named after the 45 degree hillside: in the old Champagne dialect, Gois or Goisse means a very steep slope. The 1999 Clos de Goisse is 65% Pinot Noir ad 35% Chardonnay.

This champagne reveals a gold colour and a fine and delicate mousse. The nose exudes expressions of mineral, chalk, and smoky with hints of white peach and flowers. The 1999 Clos de Goisse offers a powerful palate, very intense, yet with lovely precision. Magnificent and elegant, this vintage is very detailed and aromatic.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1999 Clos des Goisses flows from the glass with the essence of minerals, chalk, smoke, ash, white peaches, pears, flowers and sweet oak. This is a muscular, powerful wine that needs serious bottle age to come around, yet it possesses striking clarity and detail in its aromatics and flavors. Clos des Goisses is one of the most rewarding wines to drink when mature, and I have no doubt this will be another splendid version. This refined, sumptuous wine is not to be missed. Clos des Goisses is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, and 30% of the wine was fermented in oak. This bottle was disgorged in March 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.
